...spring cleaning...

March's greenVALENTINE Challenge:

Consider switching to "greener" cleaning products...after all it is spring cleaning time! 

Here are a few of my favorites above. My advice is to just replace as you go...it does not make sense to waste a bunch of products that you already have.  Just try a new brand every time you run out of something.  I have tried a lot of different "green" products out there and some are much better than others so don't give up. I have found that most of the time you can get your home very clean while also saving money and making your home safer for you and your family!  Even simple things like lemon and baking soda can go a long way!  

How do you clean green? 

P.S. I was thrilled to read my friend ERIN's new blog (www.limeandlove.blogspot.com) & discover that I inspired her to make some cloth napkins for her kids.  What a great idea to sew them into little sizes so the kids don't make a huge mess with them.  LOVE IT!  
 Check her out at Lime & Love .  

Anyone else out there trying my greenVALENTINE challenges?

Have you found any really effective bathroom cleaners for mold/milder on grout in the shower? I generally use all earth friendly cleaners but have given up on the shower cleaners... I have also used baking soda and borax but you have to scrub so much that it took forever to clean the shower and was exhausting thay I wasn't doing it as often, any suggestions? Congrats on your move!

i have not discovered a "green" option for this. i have had the same problem so i have to use the harsh stuff for the shower, toilet and sometimes even something with bleach for mold/mildew (although typically i try to avoid bleach at all costs)! at least this is the only thing i have to use it for! :) thanks! maybe someone else will have an idea! (p.s. we are thrilled about the move and hope we get to see you more now)!
